Nobody expected Vanessa Bryant to speak out with the amount of grief she is dealing with in losing a husband in Kobe Bryant and a 13-year-old daughter in Gianna Bryant.
She shocked everybody when she posted on Instagram a lengthy statement on what her family is dealing with.
Following the deaths of her husband and daughter, Vanessa Bryant changed her Instagram profile picture to a beautiful photo of them embracing each other.
The photo was taken while Bryant was warming up with Gianna during the NBA All-Star Game in Toronto in 2016.
Kobe and Gianna — along with two of her basketball teammates and their family members, an assistant coach, and the pilot of the helicopter — were on their way to a youth basketball game at Kobe’s Mamba Sports Academy when the chopper crashed in foggy conditions in Calabasas.
